This week with the Sunday Supper group I am posting a recipe for pasta jambalaya using a 6-color tracconi pasta which I think gives it a much more festive feel than tagliatelle, hence the name Carnivale.

Cajun Pasta Carnivale

It is in some ways similar to Cajun chicken pasta but has a bit more to it. If you like the chicken pasta you are sure to like this. It had characteristics of jambalaya but with a Cajun spiced alfredo sauce.
